Hello from Sunday night
What a fabulously glorious weekend round here! 😀
After a solid week of rain the sun peeked out on Saturday making the whole day shiny and bright. Kerstie and Adam came back form their holidays and stopped by with our little girls for a full day of family fun. We’ve missed them like crazy and each time they come for a visit it seems like they’re so much older. Binky (Ever) is now four years old and in preschool, Bunny (Isla) is two and everything a bright and shiny red-headed girl should be, and baby Ziggy (Zoe) is the smiliest, happiest little six month old in the world. There was a whole lot of toy exploring, blanket rolling, baby cradling, book reading, castle building, and crayon drawing going on.
Kerstie found a “professional fire hula hoop” and brought it for Chloe. Chloe tried it on for size and loved it to pieces. Morgan was completely entranced looking at the spinning hoop. No, it isn’t going to be lit on fire at any time.
We explored the grandma hand-knit sweater box to swap out some of the sweaters that the girls can now wear. I guess that for them this is the great-grandma sweater box. Chloe was telling us about how much she loved each sweater. Remembering when and where she wore them and telling us which were her favourites and why. I sometimes think I really should learn how to knit. Maybe just a sock or two. Wait, I guess it would have to be two…lol.
The sun shone all day Sunday as well. My indoor plants, which usually have a nice holiday outdoors all summer, are all doing very well, and I was super excited to find several nice, fat flower buds on my cymbidium orchid. I’m super excited because this is only the third time in, like a million years, that my little miracle plant is promising me a bloom. I must have done something right this year. 😀
Hope you’ve all had as shiny and bright a weekend as I have, and if not, I hope your week ahead is wonderful.

Precious moments with family….. can we grandmothers ask for a much better Sunday than that?
So true. I’m just in love with those little girls. Each time I see them they’re so different. Even if only a week has gone by. 😀

Veronica, such beautiful photos! Happy is the message! Beautiful weekend here as the snow has melted. 🙂
Oh my goodness Patricia, what a difference across the miles. We hardly have any snow up on the mountains yet here on the West Coast. I hope we do get some snow this winter though. 😀
What a lovely way to spend your Sunday. I loved seeing the photos of all those knits waiting to be tried on. Juliex

Being a grandmother is even better than being a mother – no responsibilities, and you can spoil the children at will!
Nice to see your family Veronica, you must have grown a green thumb this year!
Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday.
Veronica, what a bright weekend you captured here. Love all the light and smiles! Especially love the baby with the yellow fluff–gorgeous!! Isn’t it wonderful to have heirlooms and stories to share? Fabulous! 🙂
Kerstie looks so much like you .. and those grands are adorable … i have no doubt if you decided to learn to knit you’d be creating your own patterns in a matter of nano seconds

Hello Donna, thank you so much. Those grandbabies of mine keep getting in front of my camera. 😀
